Delhi district courts lawyers will go on strike tomorrow 12.10.2017 Business Standard: News Now
The lawyers of all six district courts in the national capital will go on a day-long strike tomorrow to protest against alleged misconduct of some judges. "The reasons for calling a complete strike are misconduct of judges with litigants and huge corruption in the judiciary. We have already given the names of erring judges to the High Court but no action has been taken so far," advocate Jaiveer Singh Chauhan, Secretary General of the coordination committee of Delhi bar associations, said. In a unanimous resolution adopted by the Coordination Committee of all District Court Bar Associations here, it was alleged that some judges were repeatedly misbehaving with the lawyers by treating them as subordinates. The strike is likely to paralyse work in all six district courts at Patiala House, Rohini, Saket, Tis Hazari, Dwarka and Karkardooma. Yesterday, the lawyers at the Tis Hazari Court had also gone on a strike to protest against the alleged "rude behaviour" of a ...

A look at Delhi in the year gone by 11.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Governance As the Delhi government entered its second year in 2016, the tug-of-war between the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (APP) government and the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre continued, became even more acrimonious, with previous Lieutenant-Governor (L-G) Najeeb Jung at the centre of the bitter ballet. Jung and Kejriwal-led government entered into a legal battle over ruling the national Capital and the first round was won by Jung. The Delhi High Court in its decision said L-G wasn’t bound by the ministers’ advice while that the issue should be left to the Centre in the event of a dispute between the two. Towards the end of 2016, Jung submitted his resignation. The pending files of the government then moved to the new L-G Anil Baijal who initially gave approval on the issues which were rejected by his predecessor. As the approvals came in, new projects were launched in the capital. The AAP government did some pioneering work majorly in two sectors — health and education. New ...
